Tim Tebow to New York Really?

UPDATE: 3:30 P.M. ESPN is reporting that the Tebow deal may fall through because the Jets would have to pay Denver $5 million.

This isn't really local commentary, but I am a huge sports fan, and I can't believe the New York Jets would bring Tim Tebow to their team. Their starting QB Mark Sanchez is already very shaky from a confidence standpoint, and whenever Sanchez bounces a pass to Santonio Holmes the fans in New Jersey will be chanting for Tebow.

I just can't see how this is going to help Sanchez settle down. I know former Miami Dolphins Coach Tony Sparano, formerly of New Haven, is a big fan of the Wildcat package, but teams caught onto it two years ago, and Tebow isn't accurate enough to scare teams with his throwing ability.

Tebow's brilliant performance to beat the Steelers in playoffs had to be a result of divine intervention because it was the only game where he scared teams with his arm.

I actually think Tebow has value as an H-Back/Tight End. We'll see maybe that is what the Jets have in mind.

I think with Miami and the Jets slipping and the Patriots improving New England will rule the AFC East for years to come.

What do you think about Tebow and the trade to the Jets? Please share your comments here.
